I have a 2015 Wildcat Maxx 28RKX.
The unit has a platform/spare tire carrier on the rear. I am planning on removing the spare tire, lowering the platform and securing with the pins provided. I plan to mount a Champion generator that weighs approximately 100lbs. My concern is the "bouncing" going down the road. The factory says the platform is rated 150lbs. Does anyone out there have experience/recommendations about this.
Thanks in advance.
I suspect if it came from the factory with a fold down rack that is rated for 150# then 100# shouldn't be an issue. Is the rack solely mounted to the bumper or the frame?
Many factory racks mount to the frame.
It's the folks who add something aftermarket to bumpers that have issues.
I suggest you place something that has little value that weighs about 100lbs on the rack then have someone tow it down a typical road and follow it. Then make your decision. Based on my experience being behind items ( bikes/gensets) on the back of TT/5ers I would not do it.

I agree with FLYBOB, I built mine and I haul firewood, bikes, and sometimes extra propane bottles. I have had my friends follow me and said that everything rides smooth, but I have seen some that I was afraid to follow because the bounced around to much.
